Garden Stepping Stone

Stepping stones add a wonderfully practical and artistic element to backyard garden spaces. They can make it easier to navigate the contours of the back yard garden by adding stones every few feet to create a pathway. Making your own stepping stones can be easy and a fun craft activity to add your personal creative style to your garden.

Step Four

Using your scraper or a spatula, smooth out the surface of your concrete. You can gently tap the cheesecake on the ground to get it to settle a little more cleanly..

Step Five

Begin adding your design. Using gems, sea glass, small stones, mosaic shards or even using handprints or pawprints, create a design that speaks to you. Don't push the stones in too deep, or they may become covered in concrete and get lost.

Step Six

When you have finished your design, allow your concrete to cure that amount recommended on the container. Keep in a dry, warm place. When it is set, it is ready to pop out of the cheesecake tin and into your garden! Enjoy.
